In cities around the world, we are redefining our sense of urban living. No longer satisfied with a grey, sterile metropolis, we want the best of both worlds – the energy and diversity of the city, but a connection with nature too. Filled with practical advice, projects and inspiring stories from bus stop landscapers, guerrilla gardeners, urban homesteaders and rooftop beekeepers from all over the world, The Rurbanite illustrates how our cityscapes are being transformed and shows you how enjoyable and simple it is to: * turn your back garden into an urban homestead * put a green roof on your garden shed * plant to encourage wildlife * guerrilla garden * keep bees, hens, quails, ducks * learn to identity the wild flowers growing out of cracks in the pavement * turn ex-industrial sites into vibrant community gardens
